Fuel cells are an alternative solution to produce electric power. Fuel cells safely harness the energy from the electro-chemical reaction when hydrogen and oxygen are combined. The only products of the reaction are electricity and water. Fuel cells are under development by both the transportation and utility industries to offer higher efficiency and lower pollution than fuel combustion based power systems.
